Miley Cyrus: Donald Trump Is “Villainous”
Cyrus was one of the honorees at the star-studded luncheon, and used her time on stage to discuss her Happy Hippie Foundation, the importance of equality, and the need to help people. “To be honest — and being honest can sometimes be dangerous for me, but I’m gonna do it anyway — standing here with so much attention on Happy Hippie and our ambition to break the cycle and the stigma surrounding homeless and LGBTQ youth came with a lot of ideas about the overwhelming and even terrifying responsibility that comes with power,” the pop star said.
“And maybe it’s because of the villainous vibes that surround power and the poor examples of how too many leaders abuse it — yes, that’s for Donald Trump,” Cyrus continued, before joking, “Or maybe it’s because following a year behind Oprah is just too much of a towering, unfair pressure that no one should ever be put under! Thanks a lot!”
Cyrus went on, “The definition of power is the ability to do something or act in a certain way. It also means the ability to direct or influence the behavior of others, and I would like to think that goes beyond my fans showing up with nipple pasties outside of my concerts.”
At the end of her speech, “The Voice” coach said, “To anyone who’s ever felt like they’re different or they don’t fit in, I want you to take that as a victory and know that you’re not alone. I want you to send love out into the universe, because we desperately need it. I’m wishing for peace on our planet because hate and war has gone on for way too long.”
Cyrus has spoken out against the Republican presidential nominee before, and even compared Trump to the Kardashians in her Variety “Power Of Women” cover story. Watch the star’s full remarks below.
